This is one of the last Panthers produced, distinguishable by the small loops for attaching foliage on the side of the turret and the absence of the ring for mounting a machine gun on the cupola.

My SANYO J4 camera broke down just before the New year.
I dropped it on the floor (twice...) and the man at the shop says it's too expensive to fix.

Sad, I really loved that camera...

Panzer Pzkpfw II
Photo from the invasion of Norway, 1940.
Packing a 20 mm cannon plus a MG34 machinegun, the panzer II had a lot more to offer in terms of fighting power than the puny Panzer I and it was the most numerous German tank when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. By 1942 it had more or less disappeared from frontline service. It's main force was superior radio equipment and speed, giving it a fair share of the German Blitzkrieg victories of 39' to 41.
It later formed the basis for the successfull Luchs scout tank and 145 Panzer II's were still on strength with the Panzerwaffe in march 1945.

Visited my friend Hans and watched Hustle and Flow a great film about the highs and lows of a black pimp in Memphis, USA who decides to move up (or down?..) in life and become a rapper. There are outstanding performances from a largely unknown group of actors (and Isaac Hayes) and the black southern slang spoken in the movie is hilarious, especially during the (frequent) quarreling between the pimp and his troupe of "bitches" (you'll understand the double meaning of that word after watching this film...)
Hustle and Flow also has a great conversation between the pimp and his new partner in music (the soundman at the local church with a bitching wife) they talk about the classic subject of "talk-the-talk/ walk-the-walk"

A: Yeah, youze know abaoutta "talk the talk or walk the walk" right?
B: what youze saying, brutha?
A: Ah's saying that some niggaz, theyze good at talking, they talk alla the time...
B: uh-hmm...
A: But some niggaz, theyze don't do a lot of talking, cuz theyze too busy WALKING, you see?
B: uh-hmm...and youze saying?
A: Ah's saying; that some niggaz talk the talk, but they don't always walk the walk...
B: Yeah, I gets that brutha, but where does that put youze?
A: I'm the kinda nigga they talk into doing the walking FO' them..."

Panzer Pzkpfw I
An offical photo realeased before WWII showing off the new military might of Germany. In reality the "Panzer eins" was just a lightly armoured vehicle carrying twin MG34 machineguns, which made it effective against concentrations of enemy infantry but not of much use against "real" tanks like the French Char 1b, the British "Matilda" or the Russian T34.
